Scratchbox on AMD64

February 27, 2009 on 12:07 pm | In maemo | 2 Comments

Following yesterday's vdso32 hack. The same colleague now built amd64 packages for maemo4 scratchbox.

Also with debian repo; just add

deb http://www.ipi.fi/~pablo/sbox_amd64 /

to your apt sources.

VDSO32 disabler kernel module

Scratchbox needs vdso disabled, which can be done run-time with 32-bit kernels. With 64-bit kernels, however, this is not possible... until now. A colleague of mine wrote a (hacky) kernel module to do exactly that, it seeks the vdso-flag and writes 0 to it. I helped him with dkms/deb packaging, and now it's available for download.

Note that this does not help with any other annoyances with sbox on 64-bit system, but at least it is something.
